Mark Gatiss as Rat, Lee Ingleby as Mole and Matt Lucas as Toad

New Year's Day 2007, 6.20pm, BBC One

Toad, Mole, Rat and Badger come to life in a thrilling adventure, featuring an all-star cast as you've never seen them before.

Shy Mole (Lee Ingleby) leaves his hole one spring and is entranced by the world he discovers along the riverbank.

He makes friends with the water-loving Rat, and soon encounters Mr Toad (Matt Lucas), an enthusiastic and mischievous lover of all new things, especially fast cars.

But Toad's wild ways and his love of motoring get him into serious trouble. With the help of wise old Badger (Bob Hoskins), can the woodland friends come to his aid? Will Toad ever change his ways?
